Crushed Nerve in back

Patient : I crushed a vertabrea in my back about 10 years ago and have been in lots of pain since then.I think I also crushed a nerve in it also,as when I walk,stand or sit too long get burning throbbing pain so bad I feel like throwing up. I had MRI and Cat scan but nothing shows up,as they are taking lying down and I am not in pain when I am lying down it is the only relief I have. Am at the end of my wits and don't know what else I can do.Any suggestions.
